“Getting to perform ‘Castles’ alongside such spine tingling orchestral musicians at Abbey Road was honestly an almost unbelievable moment,” says Ridings. “After the isolation of the last year coming together to play alongside them was such a joyous celebration. I’m so happy Amazon Music UK gave us such an incredible opportunity!”
